Have you seen ELITE SQUAD from Director Jose Padilha? Shit is just crazy intense. It packs as much of a punch as CITY OF GOD but this one is wrapped around a police procedural. When I heard that Padilha was directing the ROBOCOP remake I thought it was an awesome “get” for the project. Padilha hooked up with Super Hero Hype to spill some beans on the project.
on the original robocop:
“…RoboCop is brilliant, first because it lends itself to a lot of social criticism, but also because it poses a question, ‘To when do you lose you humanity?’ The way it does that is by replacing body parts with machine parts, and that’s very smart because guess what? It’s going to happen!”
His take on the remake:
“…I can tell you this: In the first ‘RoboCop’ when Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop. My movie is between those two cuts. How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?”
Looking good crime fighters! We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
See you on forty deuce,
